Thomas Potter’s grave

Thomas Potter's grave

Hubby and I honeymooned on the Jersey shore, and took in a visit to Murray Grove, the site of John Murray and Thomas Potter’s providential meeting and for more than a century a (Unitarian) Universalist camp and retreat site.

Alas, Potter’s chapel, though deeded to Murray, was never claimed by him — he never knew he was the heir — and fell into Methodist hands and was replaced in the nineteenth century. Potter’s grave, next to it in a cemetery used by the general local community, was re-marked by later generations of Universalists.
